Comments - Beautiful print by Masayoshi of a peony blowing in heavy rainstorm. The artist creates a strong feeling of movement as the shades of gray lighten in the direction of the falling rain. The bright pink stands in contrast to the gray background, creating a striking composition. A lovely piece.
